    You don't actually need a token. Its mostly just cosmetic. Can't say the same for these Dungeon cards. Its just overall a clunky design.

    This set seems more like a supplemental product like planechase, archenemy or explorers of ixalan.
    I guess those didn't sell enough so they force everyone to play them now.
    I also though they don't want to do parasitic mechanics like energy any more which only work with cards which explicitly refer to the mechanic.
    Most likely they'll also bring back quests and make them even more complicated.

    All valid points but I cant help it I like the dungeons. They are fun.

    Ermmm. Those cards in no way mimic the D&D experience. Look at Dungeoneer for how to mimic the D&D experience with cards. These are just what people come up with when they have no idea where to go next but must do something novel to keep on track with their yearly work objectives.

    This could be fun with a bunch of Ball Lightning-like dudes + some dragons.

    Trelassara Mood Dancer makes three cards now that +1/+1 themselves with lifegain. Griffon Aerie is another white payoff for lifegain card, plus there's always the pay 50 life deal 50 damage artifact. Seems like some kind of life deck has a lot more tools to finish off the game once you've got the life total to do it.

    Ok, wait. I stopped playing for a while, but... the CMC is surely 1 if you're fetching it, since it's not on the stack. It's just that X = 0, which you mostly don't need except in rare cases.

    Saga can't fetch it because it specifies mana cost 1, not cmc 1. But last I checked, Trinket Mage says cmc 1, so it can fetch it if you want to pop it at 0 or find some way to add counters once it's in play.

    Or is my brain also farting?

    EDIT: Upon reflection, you probably just meant Saga. Carry on!

    Mana value of sphere of anihilation = 1
    Mana cost of sphere of anihilation = XB or B (not sure how do you count the X).

    So yes, i meant saga could not retrieve it but trinket mage can don't worry.

    The cost of the card is XB

    Whoever thought this kind of formatting is okay deserves to be fired. Those useless ability words are extremely distracting.

    Actually they're great and perfect for the DnD flavor.

    There's only one reason to fire that person: you don't gain d8+1 life per caster level (max +5).

    That seems like something that will see play in modern combo decks. Not that it matters much, but I'm guessing you don't have to pick the card until you decide to play it either.

    Wonder why it doesn't exile itself like all the other wishes? Is that part of whatever snazzy acronym design philosophy we're on now?
